Quick tips to get started
Begin with a shorter club. (ie 8 or 9 iron) Do not try and hit longer clubs until you have familiarised yourself with power package.
It is highly recommended to learn the basics of Power Package using practice swings without hitting balls. Start with small swings (maybe waist high) learning how to properly set your wrists by allowing your forearms to fit into the cups. It is easiest to start with your hands close to the base of the Power Package.
As you become more comfortable with Power Package and controlling your wrist set you can move your hands further
from the base of Power Package and start making larger swings. Optimal wrist set is about inch to an inch and half from the base.
If you feel you're ready to start hitting balls, please start by hitting off of a tee.
NOTE If you miss-hit the ball to the right you're not turning through the ball and you are over using your hands

My students want what you want … POWER … ACCURACY … CONSISTENCY …
To get all this, I’m always going to recommend you come see me and my team of teaching pros at the Tour Striker Academy. But if you can’t … I’ve got the next best thing … and I’ll tell you more about this in a minute.
But first, I want to go through the most common mistakes I see on my lesson tee. Once you’re aware of these mistakes, you can quickly fix them and start hitting the shots you KNOW you can hit … over and over.
PROBLEM #1. NOT SETTING THE WRISTS CORRECTLY.
You have to have some flex in your wrists in the backswing so you get “snap” and power at impact. My students are always confused about setting the wrists when they first come to see me.
Should you let your wrists hinge naturally? Or should you make a big effort to hinge them? My answer … it’s more important to get the correct hinge then worry too much about when they hinge. But it’s something you absolutely have to feel.
PROBLEM #2. SWING PLANE THAT’S TOO FLAT OR TOO UPRIGHT.
One of the hardest thing for any golf teacher is to explain the concept of swing plane. But you have to get this right so you gain the shallow angle of attack that leads to perfect contact.
I’m not going to try to explain swing plane here … it would take a book. But when I’m working with a student to gain that perfect swing plane, I try to get them to FEEL it. And I’ll show you a way you can feel swing plane in just a minute.
PROBLEM #3. OPEN OR CLOSED CLUBFACE AT THE TOP OF THE BACKSWING.
EVERY great golfer has the clubface square at the top of the backswing. So … if you’re struggling with consistency, then the culprit is likely a clubface that’s either open or closed at the top of the backswing.
But there’s another problem … by the time your clubface is either open or shut at the top of the backswing, it’s too late to fix the issue. So it’s crucial to start your swing correctly. Why? Those first 12 inches of your swing lead to consistent and solid ball-striking.
PROBLEM #4. CLUB TOO FAR ACROSS THE LINE OR LAID OFF AT THE TOP OF THE BACKSWING.
In a perfect world, your club is pointing straight at the target at the top of the backswing. Again … this leads to consistency. You don’t want your club pointing to the right or left of the target.
Yes … certain professional golfers get away with some less than perfect positions at the top of the backswing. But they get to play and practice ALL the time and can make the necessary adjustments. If you were taking a lesson with me, I would strive to help you gain that “perfect” position with the club pointing right down the line.
PROBLEM #5. OVERSWINGING LEADING TO LOSS OF WIDTH … THE DREADED COLLAPSE …
Many weekend golfers feel they have to make a huge turn to generate power. That’s a common misunderstanding. What ends up happening … the lead arm collapses and this can lead to all sorts of problems … none of them good.
When you lose width, you can hit the ball thin … fat … and even off the hosel. You must find a way to keep the extension in your swing if you want power, accuracy, and consistency.
PROBLEM #6. EARLY RELEASE ON THE DOWNSWING …
Ever seen someone fly-fishing? They bring their arm back and cock the wrist. Then they release their wrist. It’s called ‘casting’ and it’s fine for fishing but terrible for golf.
When you ‘cast’ or release the wrists too early on the downswing, you lose power. Plus you can hit really awful fat shots. The timing of the release of the club is easier to achieve than you think. I’ll show you how to make this happen in a minute.
PROBLEM #7. LACK OF BODY ROTATION THROUGH THE BALL …
The engine of the golf swing … the source of power … is body rotation. Yes, you get power from your legs and core … but rotation is where you get the real power and consistency.
But there’s more to rotation than simply turning the shoulders … a lot more. The timing of the rotation has to be correct and the it must be connected to the arms and hands.
DON’T PANIC … EVERY GOLFER HAS TO DEAL WITH ONE OF THESE PROBLEMS …
Every golfer has to deal with at least one of the problems above … even the pros … including me and all my teachers. But once you’re fully aware of what’s going on, you can deal with the problem and become the consistent and powerful golfer you know you can be.
So let’s move the positive side … here are seven goals for all my students.
Set the wrists correctly during the backswing.
Club on the correct swing plane.
Clubface square to the target at impact.
Shaft and clubface pointing to the target at the top of the backswing.
Maintain width throughout the swing.
Delayed release of the club in the downswing for maximum “snap” through impact.
Correct and powerful body rotation with good connection of the arms and hands.
Easier said than done, right? I disagree. That’s because my friend and colleague Chris Walkey has created a training aid … it’s so good, I wish I had created it!
